    Hey thanks for the help on the auto rotate. You were by far the easiest to follow. I have now lost the gray and blue goole notification bar and would like to know how to get it back. I trashed it. I am not very good at all the technical stuff.

    Hi, I don’t suppose you know about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 screen rotation problem? I froze mine on vertical and then went to change it back and the option isn’t there anymore. Most frustrating!

    Thanks (in advance and in anticipation….).

    Thank you for the tutorial on how to enable auto rotation again. I apparently inadvertently locked it and didn’t know how to get the rotation back.
